Starting almost 30 miles south in the City of Snohomish, the trail is built mostly on the old Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway, which you know better as the Burke-Gilman and Sammish River Trails.
It would take about 12 miles of trail along the rail line to connect the Sammish River Trail in Woodinville to the Centennial Trail.
The Seattle Times recently featured the trail:
Winter or summer, Centennial Trail devotees ride on this old railroad line, biking through the rolling farmland and old lumber towns and on the railroad trestle where the Stillaguamish River rolls below. You can see leaping coho during their fall run if you time it right.
Some bike to the historic Bryant General Store, where chairs and picnic tables await weary weekend warriors who fuel up on coffee or fill their growlers with IPA.
Now, bikers can ride even farther north. As of November, a new link north of Arlington stretches the Centennial Trail to 30 miles, from the town of Snohomish to the Skagit County line.
It’s one of the most popular multipurpose trails in Western Washington. Cyclists and rollerbladers, joggers and dog walkers, even horse riders use it.
